Set-pieces: Salah can profit from Milner absence

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 9 of Fantasy Premier League.

Andrew Robertson (£6.3m)

The Liverpool left-back has been one of the standout creators among FPL defenders this season.

Robertson has supplied 12 scoring chances from open play, at least three more than any defensive rival.

Only Mohamed Salah (£12.8m), with 15, has bettered that total for Liverpool.

This suggests that Robertson has been unfortunate only to earn two assists in his first eight Gameweeks.

Strong defence

Liverpool's defensive resilience has been a big factor in helping the Scot to 49 points, a total that ranks second for defenders.

Jurgen Klopp's side have five clean sheets, joint-top with Manchester City.

Crucially, Robertson's defensive displays are well-suited to the Bonus Points System (BPS), which determines bonus points for each match.

He has won 14 tackles, at least four more than any team-mate.

That has helped him collect bonus points on four of the occasions that Liverpool have produced a clean sheet.

Weekend potential

The Reds' trip to Huddersfield Town heightens the potential of Robertson.

His hosts have failed to score in their four home matches this season and Huddersfield's total of 17 goals against is exceeded only by the 21 of Fulham.

Robertson's raids forward, combined with the potential for another clean sheet, can be a big source of points for his 27.7 per cent owners.
